I spent 10 days in February at this amazing villa in the St. Ann's Bay/Priory area. It was perfect for my needs with family coming to visit on random days. The three-bedroom house itself comfortably accommodates a large family. But the star of the show is the front porch that is nestled within a beautifully landscaped garden! The porch is ideal for dinner or breakfast with a view of the ocean in the distance.
The villa has access to a private beach that is a short car ride away. You need a car to get there, but the host can arrange for a driver. One the days I visited the beach, I had the beach all to myself so it felt like my own private hideaway.
Upon arrival, I was greeted by the lovely owner and her daughter who welcomed me with a bowl of amazing Jamaican fruit...perfect to start any healthy vacation :-)
Dining options are not that many in the area, but I stumbled upon Bamboo Blu, which is ideal for a romantic getaway. And of course, Scotchie's has the best jerk chicken for miles around. Ocho Rios is only minutes away so you can find anything you need at an area grocery store. I did not use this option, but I was told that the house keeper is also an amazing cook and can whip up really good Jamaican food.
This was a beautiful and amazing villa. I highly recommend it and I cannot wait to go back.
